August 7, 2015  Day 48  New York Summer 2015
Free City Dock
Sylvan Beach, NY

We stayed here at the dock at Sylvan Beach again today and watched many boaters arrive for the weekend Canal Fest. We also saw many boats just cruising up and down the canal and out into Lake Oneida.
Bill attacked the generator problem this morning and replaced the broken impeller.  We now have a functioning generator - a good thing because this free dock has no power!

We went out for lunch at a nearby restaurant on the water, the Canal Café, and had fish & chips. Then we took a walk back into the center of town, which is all of five blocks away,  andpast the amusement park. We walked through the craft fair area and then came back to the boat to relax for the afternoon.

We had dinner on board – steaks on the grill and fresh corn on the cob.  We will leave in the morning and travel to Ilion, NY and stay at a marina.  We have four locks to transit and about 41 miles to cruise. We will miss the main parts of the Canal Fest, but they need our portion of the dock tomorrow to judge the boat parade. 

Zoltar was calling out to us but we kept walking!
